Another shooter at work

This past Thursday evening I met up with some fellow film photography friends at the Beaches / Ashbridge’s Bay for some evening shooting. We saw this videographer who was setting up a sunset time lapse video.

I was out this morning at Ashbridges Bay. It was a brilliantly sunny day, so I decided to have some fun darkening the sky with the combination of Rollei Retro 80s film (with near infrared sensitivity) and a combination of deep red and polarizing filters on my Mamiya RZ67 and 65mm wide angle lens.


Reflections in the Bay

Last Sunday I was out shooting wth my friend Ori in Ashbridges Bay. He had his 4×5, and I was shooting with my Mamiya RZ67. For a few minutes the water was calm enough for clear reflections, then a breeze came up and the moment was gone.

At the Beach

Ilford HP5+ is a film that I’ve never had luck with in 35mm; it’s always been just too grainy when I develop it. And that was certainly true with the latest roll, so for this image I decided to bow to the inevitable, and accentuate the grain with some post processing. I captured this image at Ashbridges Bay in Toronto, while waiting for a model to show up; it was a very grey September evening, and this part of the beach was certainly not busy.
